Business advisory firm Deloitte has appointed Michael Coogan as a strategic adviser to its financial services practice.
Mr Coogan, a regular columnist in sister newspaper Financial Adviser, will join the firm on Monday (9 January) and will work closely with the retail banking and building society advisory group.
He will focus on developing the firm’s insights into the retail banking and mortgage market, and will provide strategic consulting advice to Deloitte’s clients.
He was previously director general of the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML), a role he held for almost 15 years.
Stephen Williams, head of Deloitte’s regional financial services practice, said: “I am delighted Michael will be joining Deloitte.
“He is recognised as one of the leading experts in his field and his appointment further strengthens an impressive team that is well placed to help clients meet and overcome the challenges ahead, and take advantage of future opportunities.
“In particular, with the regulatory changes to the mortgage market, this will allow us to deliver to our clients tailored solutions and insights in these uncertain times.”
Mr Coogan said: “I am looking forward to joining Deloitte in this new role at a time of major change in retail financial services.
“The breadth of commercial challenges will need careful management in the next few years, and I look forward to applying my knowledge and experience from the CML to support the advisory group and a range of Deloitte clients.”
